Little by little

It is usually said that leaders need to focus on big picture stuff, but this forgets that even grand plans have to be implemented one step at a time, one day at a time.  It is the same with personal change, you only lose weight ounce by ounce, you can’t jump to pounds or stones.  I know there are programs on TV where they take mega-heavy people and put them through very intense programs with professional trainers and you see them lose 16 lbs in a week but real people don’t do this and it is hard to keep it off if you do it that way too.  Habits and cultures are built slowly, it takes time to change how people behave and think.  So don’t beat yourself up if you are not transforming overnight.  Rather ask yourself “Am I doing the right things?  Could I do it better?”  and if you you are satisfied, keep it up, if you can do better adapt and improve.  Success comes from keeping on keeping on.
